Dry Hydrant Training
By Mechanicsville Volunteers
July 12, 2021

On the morning of July 12th 2021, a crew went out in the Pumper and set up a draft from one of the more difficult spots in our first due. We have been working with GBW Associates LLC on potential dry hydrant set ups at local bridges in our area. They wanted us to specifically test this location prior to any work due to the amount of lift required to pull a draft.

Engine 21 was able to draft the water approximately 16’ straight up out over the bridge side.

You’re volunteers are always out working on perfecting our craft and looking for ways to improve the service we provide to the community.
